Anthony's (South Hadley, MA)

Quality of Dances (14/20) – Technically this is a one-way contact club, but few if any of the girls enforce that, and some act insulted if you aren't groping them. The girls don't use their hands and don't try to finish you off, but the dances are very aggressive. I'm not usually a champagne room guy, but I've bitten the bullet and can confirm that it's worth it here, especially with the Latinas.

Quality of Dancers (6.5/10) – There are a few older dancers who probably shouldn't be here, but other than that, their girls are mostly in the 6-9 range. Recent visits have been a little disappointing, but the quality is still fairly good overall, and there's almost one or two completely blazing girls in the place.

Number of Dancers (5/10) – When this place is crowded, you just have to hope that everyone else is too cheap to get dances, because otherwise you'll be waiting awhile to get anyone's attention without going to the stage. Unfortunately, it's usually fairly crowded. There usually seems to be about a half dozen dancers in the afternoons and about double that in the evenings.

Variety/Diversity of Dancers (3.5/5) – You'll probably find a decent mix of white girls and Latinas, but there are occasionally some very attractive black dancers as well. Though it's rare to see a chubby girl, the full range of fit shapes are usually represented.

Attitude of Dancers (6/10) – Even when they're busy, most of the girls take a little bit of time to chat before asking about dances. They aren't too hard on the sale for the VIP room, but pretty much all of them will mention it and make promises about fun that can be had back there.

Value (5.5/10) – Most of the beers are $4.75, but 16 oz. PBR cans for $3 is a great value. The cover isn't too bad at $5 in the evening if you're at least 21 ($10 if you aren't) and dances used to be a good value at $20, but you've got to be a little more selective about who you accept dances from now that they're charging $25 each. The dances are good, but you won't be leaving fully satisfied without dropping $100+ for 15 minutes in the champagne room.

Dance Setup (2.5/10) – The dances are given in a small sectioned off area in the main room. It's hard for people outside to see more than shadows, but the other people getting dances have a clear view. On the bright side, you do get your own chair for the dances, so you won't have to risk bumping into anyone else.

Club Setup (5/10) – The stage is huge, but thankfully it's no longer the only place to sit in here. There are now a few seats at the main bar, a new bar in the opposite corner, and a few small tables and a couch in the main area of the club.

Club Atmosphere (5.5/10) – The atmosphere isn't bad, but the relative lack of tables and bar seats hurts it if you've got more than 2 or 3 people in your group. Also, the club is 18+, but the kids have to sit in a special section along the wall on the far side of the club, which actually is relatively far from everyone else.

Club Accessibility (1/5) – Anthony's is reasonably close to Chicopee if that does anything for you.

Overall – Anthony's is somewhat inconsistent due to the relatively small number of dancers, but it's still probably my favorite club in the western Massachusetts. It's nothing fancy, but it's a solid little club that's worth a stop if you're in the area and can catch them when they aren't too busy.
